SheZow, a cartoon show slated to appear on US cable television, has received backlash for its 'gender-bending' main character. Created by The Hub, a children's television network, the show features Guy, a 12-year old boy, who upon shouting, 'You go girl!' turns into his female superhero alter-ego. The animation show sparked online conversations about gender identity in children's programming.

Below is a video of SheZow's theme song.
